Mariners get Lind From Brewers for 3 Minor League Pitchers
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The busy Seattle Mariners have acquired first baseman Adam Lind from the Milwaukee Brewers for three teenage minor league pitchers.
The Brewers are getting right-handers Daniel Missaki, Carlos Herrera and Freddy Peralta in the trade announced Wednesday at the winter meetings
Milwaukee picked up the $8 million option for 2016 on Lind's contract last month, but did so with the expectation that general manager David Stearns would trade him as part of the organization's rebuilding process.
The Mariners have been looking for a first baseman because general manager Jerry Dipoto already dealt Mark Trumbo and Logan Morrison.
The 32-year-old Lind batted .277 with 20 homers and 87 RBIs in 149 games during his only season with the Brewers. He hit .291 against righties but only .221 vs. lefties last year.
